We just saw stinging nettles at the farmers' market, and so did Lilia. She is wondering what to make with them. Any suggestions?
So my farmer's market has nettles this week. I once ate an amazing nettle pizza at Chez Panisse, but have never ventured to cook them myself - but they are in my CSA box this week. Any ideas for a stinging nettle recipe?
Lilia, here are some good tips on cooking with stinging nettles and a recipe for creamy soup made with nettles. For the pizza we would recommend steaming the nettles quickly, then topping a pizza and baking at high heat very briefly.
Readers, any other ideas or favorite recipes for stinging nettles?
